Dear All,


Why is it i have two user names ... meaning this below:


I have forgotten my user name ... so I login and request change password etc.


one email comes for validation and says:



This email has been sent from https: etc etc etc. (i no show link)

You have received this email because you intitiated a password recovery for your account on BleepingComputer.com.


(by the way team ... your spelling in default eamils are wrong / intitiated is incorrect / it should be initiated) (send yourself a password reset and you will see)


Anyway ... so upon this above receiving it says for example the name of me say it call me Sam123 ... ok fine hello Sam123 etc etc click here there to validate etc. ok fine done ... then another email come and it say:


This email has been sent from https etc etc (no want link)

This email completes your lost password request.


Your username is: Sam777 (its an example here but the fact is it is different? and why?) what is the user name ... Sam123 or Sam777 and why it send like this?
Your email address is: redacted

Your new password is: redacted


please explain concisely please ... as i get it one email / one user name ... but why i have letter coming to say example HI Sam123 and then it say great your all set ... your new password for user name Sam777 is etc etc etc ... you get the idea.


Thank you in advanced.

Send a PM to a mod and they can get you back to your old user name with your new password...

“May the sun bring you new energy by day, may the moon softly restore you by night, may the rain wash away your worries, may the breeze blow new strength into your being, may you walk gently thorugh the world and know it's beauty all the days of your life.”

Dear JBurd1900,


Thank you for thoughts ... however I am not at level of saying its even wrong ... the question was why? ... after i hear why then i can address what is to be fixed ... as perhaps there is to be two per say user names ...


you may try for yourself ... send a request to forget password and then read the verbiage and outcome that comes back via automated default scripts ... you may see what i see / of course with different names.
